L.A. Marzulli - The Ultimate Collection

The Nephilim Trilogy

THE UNHOLY DECEPTION is a fascinating supernatural thriller. L. A. Marzulli’s unusual perspective on aliens and UFOs is quite thought provoking and will have you reevaluating all you’ve ever heard about them. I felt at a disadvantage not having read the Nephilim, the first book in the series, but I was still quickly pulled into THE UNHOLY DECEPTION and enjoyed it very much. It carries a powerful faith message that makes you want nothing less than to be on the winning team. The plot moves along quickly and pulls you in from the very beginning. L. A. Marzulli’s characters are well developed. You’ll feel the humans’ fear and desperation turn to hope as they discover the only weapon that can conquer the aliens. The aliens are spine-chillingly creepy and will make you thankful you’ve never had to face them in person. THE UNHOLY DECEPTION has one of the most spectacular endings I’ve ever read. I felt like I was reading at supersonic speed just to find out what happened. Even if you aren’t a sci-fi fan, don’t miss this thrilling book.

“A very provocative scenario. It appears L. A. Marzulli has done his homework.” — Chuck Missler, author of Alien Encounters

The Cosmic Chess Match

An ongoing war has been raging in another dimension and spilling over into ours since the beginning of creation in the far distant past right up to the present day. I call it a chess match because there are moves and counter moves by the “players” as each seeks to gain an advantage over the other. Eventually someone will pronounce, “Checkmate!” Because the opposing player’s king has been trapped and is unable to move, thus winning the game. So who are the players? The first player and the winner of the match is El Elyon. This is the Hebrew name, which means The Most High God…

LA Marzulli - On the Trail of the Nephilim

What you are about to read is not the stuff of science fiction. It’s not a fantastic fable or the musings of an overzealous archaeologist. It’s straight out of the pages of the Bible. The 120+ pictures displayed in On the Trail of the Nephilim have not been altered in any way…

What you are about to see is truly a ground-breaking revelation. An unparalleled discovery that may leave you in stunned silence It left our own Gary Stearman almost speechless…

On the Trail of the Nephilim II

LA Marzulli - On the Trail of the Nephilim 2

The Bible is full of strange and supernatural events. But there is none stranger than the events of the sixth chapter of the Book of Genesis. Theologians have speculated and debated this bizarre passage of Scripture for thousands of years—and the debate rages on today hotter than ever! Best-selling author, L.A. Marzulli, lies at the root of this new paradigm, challenging the status quo of historical events and suggesting a cover-up of “gigantic” proportions.

His first book on the subject, On the Trail of the Nephilim, Volume 1, opened up the minds of people worldwide, stirring up a controversy that challenges the literal interpretation of Scripture and pushes the boundaries to the very edge. Traveling to Paracas, Peru, and other relatively-unknown places in South America, the author began to hunt for proof of a hybrid race of beings the Bible calls the “Nephilim.” His search left no stone unturned—public museums, private skull and skeleton collections, secret caves known only to locals, interviews with archaeologists and curators . . . what Marzulli discovered has turned the world upside down, upsetting a few Darwinian apple carts along the way. Once you have laid eyes on a gigantic Nephilim skull, your worldview may change.

What is Going on with the Russian Ruble?

rubbbbbbbllllubbblllll-1.siCommentary Analysis

by

L. A. Marzulli

http://rt.com/business/214927-ruble-capital-controls-nuclear/

Russian companies need to buy dollars now in order to pay off foreign debts in December, this month we have to pay over $30 billion to foreign creditors. In January we don’t have much to pay in dollars, so the rate may stabilize,” Prosviryakov said.

The collapse of the Russian Ruble, in my opinion is deliberate and it comes on the heels of the tumbling price of oil, as crude fell to below $60 per barrel.  http://www.businessinsider.com/oil-still-below-60-2014-12

I would posit that this has been a deliberate push-back by the US in retaliation to BRICS—Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa—who want another default currency other than the US petro-dollar.

This whole international scenario is being manipulated by the US and the Saudi’s.  Of course here in the USA we are all enjoying the low price at the pump.  But here’s the rub, with this sudden fall of the price of a barrel of oil, it begs the question, why didn’t this happen let’s say a few years ago, when the price at the pump was almost $6 bucks a gallon?

What I’m getting at is this.  The whole game is controlled and rigged.  The Saudi’s are in bed with us as we sell them arms and buy their oil. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-10-15/u-s-seeks-10-8-billion-weapons-sale-to-u-a-e-saudis.html

The BRICS nations pose a direct threat to the US petro-dollar and this is why the price of oil has dropped.  Russia is the second largest exporter of oil, in the world, which sells over 7.2 million barrels a day just behind Saudi Arabia.  Another point to consider is this, when Saddam was in control or Iraq, and started to trade oil in Euro’s, rather than the US dollar.  This is one reason I believe we invaded that country.  http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,998512,00.html

Examine the quote above:  Russian companies need to buy dollars now in order to pay off foreign debts in December, this month we have to pay over $30 billion to foreign creditors. In January we don’t have much to pay in dollars, so the rate may stabilize,”

What Americans should be outraged at is the blatant manipulation of the gas prices in this country.  There is no gas shortage only greed and avarice on the part of Big Oil!

In closing todays post.  It will be interesting to see what Putin does to counterbalance this financial attack  by the US.  Another point to consider is this.  If the US looses its grip on the petro-dollar it could cause a major financial collapse in this country.  Meanwhile keep looking at the Bill Cosby stories that won’t go away instead of the fact that Congress just passed another 1.2 TRILLION dollar budget.  It’s beyond the pale at this point….

The Nephilim Lance!

This is an artifact that the owner, Bob Shelly, Chief Joseph Riverwind, and yours truly, have come to call the Nephilim Lance.

Here’s why.  Bob thought it was a sword and so did I when I first saw it, but Chief Joseph told us excitedly that it wasn’t a sword but a lance.  He then told us how the Native American oral tradition tell of these lances that would go through three braves!  We have had it tested and it is made of Bronze.  It has hammer marks and has two edges. What we’re looking for is a weapons expert.  

We think this artifact is very old.  It was found in a remote area of Michigan.

Please contact me: la@lamarzulli.net 

The second Request is for a Forensic Pathologist.

We have an artifact that is being kept safe is cold storage.  We need a forensic Pathologist to examine it.  We are also in need of a OBGYN to examine it too.

Terror in Pakistan…..

Terror in Pakistan…..

PAKISATANCommentary Analysis

by

L. A. Marzulli 

 

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Uniformed militants attacked a school, killing at least 126 people and taking hostages on Tuesday, an official said – an atrocity condemned by the U.S. as “senseless and inhumane.”

“The gunmen entered class by class and shot some kids one by one,” a student who was in the school at the time told local media.

Provincial official Bahramand Khan said at least 126 people were killed and 122 injured. More than 100 of the dead were school children, he added. The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the assault, which appeared to be targeting the the children of senior military officials.

Bombs planted by the attackers slowed rescue efforts, a military official said, adding that operations at the scene were “closing up”.

 http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/pakistan-school-attack-taliban-militants-kill-126-peshawar-take-hostages-n269011

I don’t even know where to begin with this story.  According to the account linked above the Taliban poured gasoline on one teacher and set her on fire making her class watch her burn alive.  This is right out of hells kitchen.  There are no other words to describe these actions other than demonic.  These people who committed these heinous acts need to be brought to justice.

Here is what some of the comments say:

There is a supernatural component to this atrocity and unfortunately, I believe we will see more of this type of attack in the coming months.  As I posted a while ago, our malls and schools here in the USA are extremely vulnerable to a terrorist attack.  Radical Islam is here to stay as demonstrated by the recent Australian hostage taking at a cafe.  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2873855/Gunman-takes-hostages-cafe-Sydney.html

This is the latest tally from http://www.thereligionofpeace.com:

Then there’s this very informative article: http://time.com/3634750/shahada-in-sydney-political-islam-ayaan-hirsi-ali/

In closing todays post: Mosques are being built all over the USA.  There are now over 6 million muslims in America.  Do we have any guarantee that the same type of hostage taking will not happen here?  I will predict there will be an event in this country, and unfortunately, perhaps soon.  Jihad has become a way of life to many and this is acted out in atrocities like we see in Pakistan with the murder and beheadings of children.  Honor killings, hostage taking and the murder of innocents has no place in America.  The question is what do we do to stop it?  If we go back 30 years, the word Jihad was not part of the average American lexicon, now it is talked about all the time.  Are there conservative Muslims who will speak out against this latest atrocity coming on the heels of the Australian hostage crises?  I hope so.  In the meantime, be alert when you go into the mall this Christmas season….

Fascinating: Psych study debunks myths about ‘political extremists’

No, you can’t take an online quiz to check and see if you’re a political extremist. You can, however, read this pretty fascinating write-up of a psychological study that found some common similarities in the cognitive processes of people with strong political beliefs or affiliations.

The study, conducted at The College of New Jersey and published in the journal of the Association for Psychological Science, found that participants with firm personal beliefs – e.g. “political extremists,” as defined by the APS – were more resistant a common cognitive bias: Anchor bias.

[Psychological scientist Mark] Brandt and colleagues employed a commonly used anchoring task, in which participants are asked to make an estimate after being given an anchor number. For example, participants may be asked: “The distance between New York and San Francisco is greater than 2,000 miles. How far is it?”

Research has shown that the anchor number greatly influences participants’ estimates — that is, people work up or down from the number provided, making final guesses that are closer to the anchor. People who start with large anchor numbers end up with overly high estimates, and vice versa for people who start with small anchor numbers.

The task is politically neutral, and so it provides a tool for teasing apart the two competing characterizations of extremists. If political extremists take a relatively unthinking approach, then they’re likely to rely on heuristics in making decisions and their estimates will be close to the anchor number. If, however, extremists are especially thoughtful and confident decision makers, they should produce estimates that are farther away from the anchor.

“People who were ideologically more extreme and who reported more extreme attitudes on specific political issues produced estimates that were farther away from the anchors, suggesting greater resistance to the anchor bias,” the study’s write up read.

So, a person less “extreme” political beliefs who was offered the suggestion that “San Francisco is more than 2,000 miles away from New York” might say the two cities are 3,000 miles apart whereas someone with more confidence in their worldview might say the two cities were separated by a distance of 4,000 or 5,000 miles.

One of the takeaways from this study, according to one of its researchers, is that the common belief that those with “extreme” political views are more susceptible to suggestion than others is not well-founded. “These findings suggest that political extremists may make more confident judgments and are not necessarily unthinkingly relying on heuristics,” Brandt said.

This study is an interesting window into the psychology of people with strong political views, though the researchers’ decision to characterize those views as “extreme” is probably misleading.

That’s not the only good news for so-called “extremists” on either end of the political spectrum. According to researchers at Australia’s University of Sydney, a study of 29,000 European adults found that people with strong views are more likely to be healthier and exercise.

“Comparably, political centrists are couch potatoes, spending an hour less on exercise a week than those who hold stronger views, researchers found,” The Daily Mail reported. “They even warned that centrists and the politically uncommitted should be considered a ‘vulnerable group’ who should even consider developing stronger opinions to improve their health.”

The moral here is that everyone should find a political cause and get extreme about it. You’ll be a better person for it.

Rubio’s office: Don’t assume he won’t run for president just because Jeb Bush is in

Meh.

As noted in this morning’s post, the thinking on Rubio is that he can’t run if Jeb does. Their political operations, each based in Florida, overlap too much. And given that Jeb has already sniffed around and concluded that he’ll have the money and personnel he needs to run a national campaign, that either means Rubio’s going to run with his B-team of staffers and donors or he’s not going to run at all. Given that there’s another six years in the Senate on his plate if he wants it, why roll the dice on running for president under those circumstances and risk ending up out of public life by 2017? If he stays in Congress, he’ll be just 53 years old on election day 2024. The guy will be viable for higher office literally for decades to come.

But let’s say he’s got the itch and decides to run anyway. Does he have a path? One of the misfortunes of Bush potentially muscling Rubio out of the race, say righty Ramesh Ponnuru and lefty Danny Vinik, is that Rubio’s arguably shown the most promise of any serious 2016 candidate in appealing to the middle class from the right. If that’s the secret to turning out the “missing” white voters from 2012, he may be the GOP’s best bet against Hillary. Vinik:

Rubio’s Social Security plan was praised by reformers like National Review’s Reihan Salam and the New York Times’ Ross Douthat. He’s working with Senator Mike Lee on a tax plan that would expand the Child Tax Credit, an idea that Robert Stein, another reformicon, promoted in Room to Grow, and on a health care plan with Representative Paul Ryan. In June, Rubio gave a major policy address at a YG Network–sponsored event  in Washington, D.C., in which he praised many of these ideas.

In other words, more than any other Republican, Rubio is working to develop a new policy agenda to meet today’s challenges, and much of that agenda is coming from the reform conservatives. If Bush’s decision to run for president causes Rubio to forego his own presidential run, the reformicons will lose their best chance to influence the Republican primary.

Paleocon Michael Brendan Dougherty, despairing at the thought of another interventionist, statist Republican presidency sold under the heading of “accountability,” puts it this way: “If people want to try Bushism again, they should at least have the decency to demand that Marco Rubio’s face be stretched over that political zombie’s head.” Damn. Back to my question, though: Does Rubio have a path with Bush in the race? In theory, he’s got the same one that I described here for Scott Walker. Namely, if forced to choose between a tea-party bombthrower like Ted Cruz and (shudder) another Bush, the great mass of “somewhat conservative” voters may decide to choose the bowl of porridge that’s neither too hot nor too cold but just right, i.e. Rubio. He’d have plenty of GOP wonks behind him, precisely because of the reformist impulses he’s shown that Vinik noted. Rubio will have a tougher time than Scott Walker in filling that “just right” niche, though, for one simple reason: Whereas Walker has one great asset that he can use to bank conservative votes, no matter how squishy he gets in reaching out to the middle, Rubio has one great liability that’ll limit his ability to do so. Walker can get away with pandering to the center because, when push comes to shove, he went all in on collective bargaining reform in Wisconsin and beat the left at every turn. Rubio’s in the opposite position, having gone all in on amnesty in the Senate only to be beaten badly and left having to prove and re-prove his conservative bona fides on various issues ever since.

Maybe that’s not fatal. If I’m right that a big bunch of “somewhat conservative” voters will be looking for a “Not Bush” and a “Not Cruz,” Rubio fits the bill. But then, so does Walker. And Walker has a line of credit with the right that Rubio no longer does. How does Rubio get past him to become the consensus “hybrid” choice? I don’t get it. Having said that, though, if you’re rooting for Cruz, you probably want Rubio in this race. Although he’s a threat to pull some votes from Cruz, he’s a bigger threat to pull votes from Jeb among centrists who want a guy who’s hawkish, moderate on immigration, might have special appeal to Latino voters, and who won’t have to spend half the campaign explaining to voters how very different he is from his brother, who left office with an approval rating lower than Obama’s. All you need to do now is convince Rubio that his slim chance to outmaneuver Bush and Walker and Cruz, not to mention the other 27 people who’ll be running, is worth giving up a Senate seat for.

Exit question: If we’re going to nominate a pro-amnesty super-hawk, shouldn’t we pass on Rubio and go for the gold?

Giant blow to Millennial college student entitlement dealt by…Oberlin professor?

It is hard for me to put into words how pathetically silly I find the requests of college and post-grad students to postpone exams because of the “trauma” they experienced due to Grand Jury decisions in the national news. It is even harder to express how pathetic and silly it is that college and law school officials are bending to the requests of these “traumatized” students.

Look, if a family member dies during exam week or you’re literally unable to move from your bed because of the influenza (and even that excuse is a little overdone, so it should be viewed with a jaundiced eye by professors), fine. Depending on the professor, you’re likely to get some leeway since they’ve been teaching 15 years’ worth of Millennials already. However, if you wish to continue protesting a Grand Jury decision you find disturbing and find yourself emotionally and physically incapable of taking an exam, just suck it up and miss the exam and accept what you get for it. I’m sure your future employer at a public interest law firm or social justice non-profit that works only when things are going perfectly swimmingly in the news will find that charming, if you can find that employer.

But you’re more likely to find a regular employer who may find that disqualifying. And, I’d suggest it might be more disqualifying for social justice-y jobs than regular employment. You know, because social justice warriors who would like to be employed as social justice warriors should probably show an ability to do work while observing what they see as social injustice. That’s pretty much the entire job description.

Thus far, Columbia Law School has postponed some exams for students who wish to be lawyers to process this common legal function of American society. Harvard and Georgetown are considering requests.

But it all stops with Oberlin. Oberlin, for God’s sake. You’ve lost Oberlin, Millennials, and there is one hero professor there who has an answer worthy of your angst. In an e-mail exchange made public by Oberlin student and perfect hyphenate Della Kurzer-Zlotnik (with a trigger warning, I’m not kidding!), Kurzer-Zlotnik has a LOT to say on the behalf of minority students and whether they’re in a place to take finals. Professor Michael Raney, on the other hand, has very little to say.

This is a preview pic, with Raney’s answer and a hint of what’s in the student’s e-mail. Please click through to Elizabeth Nolan Brown as a thank you for bringing the whole, magnificent, hope-filled thing to our attention.

-della-kurzer-zlotnickfacebook blur

There seems to be precious little wiggle room in the Oberlin official policy, so maybe this will stick. Michelle Malkin, boss emeritus, rightly notes this is, of course, a visiting Oberlin professor.

Noah properly dismantled and mocked a Harvard student’s request for the same today. He is more thorough than Raney, and both responses are perfect in their own way. You doubt me?

“Cups of endurance?” Good lord. Do they runneth over into your “saucer of fortitude?” Mayhaps a few of those errant droplets are captured by your “doily of grit.”

These are allegedly the best and brightest our country has to offer.

Sydney siege live: Police negotiate with gunman after five people emerge from Lindt cafe in Martin Place

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-12-15/sydney-siege-hostages-cafe-martin-place-police-operation/5967232

Hostages were earlier seen pressing a black flag with Arabic text against the cafe’s windows.

Don’t worry folks it can’t happen here…. Oh wait!  We have the Fort Hood Shooter, Hassan who yelled Allah Akbar as he shot and killed 13 people in cold blood.  But thanks to the wisdom or our leaders, this wasn’t an act of terrorism.  Then we have the honor killings happening in America, which has no honor in it at all but is murder, plain and simple.  This was unthinkable 30 years ago.  Then we have Dearborn Michigan…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnJBW49afzg

Then we have this: More than forty Australian Muslim groups have strongly condemned the acts of gunmen who are holding an undisclosed number of people hostage at a chocolate shop and café in the country’s most populous city of Sydney. http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/12/15/390348/muslims-slam-sydeny-hostage-taking/

It’s good to see some push back!  Maybe there’s hope after all? L.A.

In show of strength, Hamas stages massive military parade in Gaza

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4603331,00.html

Hamas has in recent days stepped up its attempts at psychological warfare against Israel, test firing rockets out to sea, posting leaked videos of IDF investigations – and on Sunday staging a massive military parade in the Gaza Strip to mark the 27th anniversary of its creation. 

As I stated in previous BLOGs, Israel really has only one choice and that is to destroy, HAMAS, Hezbollah and ISIL, as well as go after the Iranians nuclear program.  Like my friend Bill Salus believes, this is most likely the beginnings of the Psalm 83 war. L.A.

This price plunge has been driven by Saudi Arabia, OPEC’s dominant power. While it’s true that part of Riyadh’s actions respond to the energy renaissance in North America, the greater motivation is breaking Iran’s will.

I may address this soon as I believe the real reason for this is to keep the US petrol-dollar afloat.  Russia is one of the leaders of the BRICS nations—Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa—who are calling for a new world default currency other than the dollar.  The dollar has been used as the currency for all trading of oil.  This is one of the reasons we went into Iraq.  Saddam was trading his oil for Euros rather than dollars.  http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,998512,00.html  L.A.

 Senate approves $1.1 trillion spending bill

A small group of conservatives, led by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), had tried to block debate on the bill by raising concerns with Obama’s immigration policy, forcing a marathon weekend session. The move infuriated their colleagues, particularly Republicans who complained that forcing senators to stay in session produced nothing positive for the GOP and only helped Democrats in their bid to approve a final batch of Obama’s nominees for government posts.

Proof that is doesn’t matter who we elect as the status quo continues unabated.  Please note that Ted Cruz is the only one standing up to the insanity that is the norm in Washington.  L.A.

This is an artifact that the owner, Bob Shelly, Chief Joseph Riverwind, and yours truly, have come to call the Nephilim Lance.

Here’s why.  Bob thought it was a sword and so did I when I first saw it, but Chief Joseph told us excitedly that it wasn’t a sword but a lance.  He then told us how the Native American oral tradition tell of these lances that would go through three braves!  We have had it tested and it is made of Bronze.  It has hammer marks and has two edges. What we’re looking for is a weapons expert.  

We think this artifact is very old.  It was found in a remote area of Michigan.

First Lady straining school lunch budgets, student stomachs

In most areas of public policy, the current First Lady has done a fairly decent job at keeping her hands out of the gears of government. For this I applaud her, and while not entirely off the field, she’s certainly set a far better example than Hillary Clinton the last time she was residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. After all, no American has ever cast a vote to elect a First Lady and they have no place in the legislative or regulatory processes. But the glaring exception to this under Mrs. Obama has been the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, where she was a very vocal proponent. As Thomas Lifson points out, it’s been something of a disaster.

By making herself queen of the school lunchroom, Michelle Obama has managed to screw things up almost as badly as Obamacare has screwed up health insurance, albeit on a smaller scale. The Twitter hashtag #thanksmichelleobama accompanying pictures of inedible school cafeteria slop is evidence that a generation of nanny state-hating youngsters will eventually enter the voting booth, just as many of their parents are turning on Democrats over Obamacare. And like Obamacare devastates family finances with high deductibles and cost increases for many, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act that Mrs. Obama pushed so hard is devastating the finances of school lunch programs.

The downstream effect of forcing schools to offer various low salt, low sugar, low taste menu items is a more expensive product which fewer kids want to buy or eat. And that is hitting schools in the pocketbook.

More than half of the nation’s school cafeteria workers expect to lose money selling low-salt, low-fat meals pushed by first lady Michelle Obama, a “serious” problem that threatens the programs, according to a survey of food providers.

The School Nutrition Association, which is planning to demand changes to the meal requirements to make the food more attractive to students, found that 50.35 percent of cafeteria officials surveyed expect that serving the food will “exceed revenue” next year. (snip)

As a result, the group plans to ask the administration to let schools ease up on the low-salt and fruit and vegetable demands. In fact, they plan to seek a recess from being required to put fruit and veggies on meal trays, according to a draft proposal.

Lifson argues that Michelle Obama is creating a generation of nanny state-hating youngsters who will eventually grow up and take to the voting booths as conservatives, but I fear he’s giving this generation of kids an awful lot of credit here. In my experience, middle school and high school kids don’t tend to be looking at the big picture, with very few exceptions. And the current crop who are mostly absorbed in their smart phones, tablets and internal, tribal social dramas aren’t really pouring through National Review at lunch every day. They may hate their lunch, but they’re more likely to blame the poor, blue haired lady in the hairnet holding the ladle than Chuck Schumer.

Their taxpaying parents, however, may indeed notice. If the school lunch budget, whether handled directly or through a sub-contractor, begins to explode and the kids come home rummaging for snacks because they didn’t eat their expensive lunch, the message is more likely to reach the target audience. Nutritious food which ends up in the trash isn’t helping anyone but the occasional freegan, and both schools and parents will need more than a mandate from the First Lady and a couple of puppets to impact their choices.

Yes, Virginia. All dogs go to Heaven

I actually registered a considerable amount of disappointment when I read that initial stories about the Pope saying that dogs go to Heaven was incorrectly reported. It had been picked up in so many outlets around that world that it was almost immediately accepted as canon. This may be due to the fact that the press – as well as so many believers around the globe – have fallen in love with Pope Francis and also been excited by the way he has reached out to the weakest, the poorest and the most despondent on the planet to inspire them with hope and remind them that they are not forgotten. So why would he not tell a young boy that he would see his beloved dog again in Heaven? It was an easy story to believe.

For the record, at least to my knowledge, Pope Francis has also not come out and said that he refutes the claim. But whether he does or not, the question has cropped up among my great nieces and nephews already, as I’m sure it will in many of your families. So I will save His Holiness some time in his very busy schedule and tell you right now.

Yes. All dogs go to Heaven.

I don’t require an advanced degree in theology to tell you that dogs are special and occupy a singular place among all the other animals. We created them and have imparted something very special in the process. No, we did not “create” them in the way that the Lord molded man from the dust of the Earth and breathed life into him. But we did pull the dog from his life as a creature of the wild and we bred him until he was not just a servant, but a friend and member of our family. We have taken the place of demi-gods to our dogs and lifted them into our karass, as Kurt Vonnegut described it.

You can read endless stories, such as the that of the dog who sat by his owner’s grave for years on end. There was Hawkeye, who refused to leave the casket of his Navy SEAL master. Talero, who guarded his owner’s dead body for 23 days in the freezing cold. But if you have a dog in your life, you don’t even need those stories. You can see it in their eyes. The love they have for you whenever you speak their name. The hurt they feel if you treat them unkindly. The boundless joy they display when you walk in the door.

These are not the acts of dumb animals. This is love.. human love, received and given in return. These are the acts of devotion which only come from a fellow being with a soul, however you wish to define that. And no righteous God would turn His back on such a beautiful creature. Further, unlike far too many of those of us who walk on two legs, these dogs never do evil of their own accord. They are blameless and deserve every reward that any of us might earn and much, much more.

These are not just stories we tell to children to ease their pain. In our house, we have the ashes of each of the dogs we have adopted. And since we plan ahead on the very likely assumption that my wife will outlive me by a good measure, she plans to bury them with me. We share that belief with all of the young ones in the family with no deception on our parts. And if any of the children in your clan hear about those stories regarding the Pope on the news and come and ask you, you can tell them with no regrets at all.

Yes. All dogs go to Heaven. And here’s just one of many who already has.

Breaking: Hostage situation in Sydney — with Arabic flag on display

A hostage situation has unfolded over the last hour or so in Sydney, Australia, but it may be a message to the world. An unknown number of perpetrators seized control of a cafe and have a dozen or more hostages, some of which have been apparently forced to display a black flag with Arabic lettering:

Hostages were being held inside a central Sydney cafe where a black flag with white Arabic writing could be seen in the window, local television showed on Monday, raising fears of an attack linked to Islamic militants.

Australia, which is backing the United States and its escalating action against Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, is on high alert for attacks by radicalized Muslims or by home-grown fighters returning from fighting in the Middle East. …

Live television footage showed patrons inside a cafe standing with their hands pressed against the windows. A black and white flag similar to those used by Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria was also visible.

From initial reports, the hostage situation has unfolded across the street from a television station — which can’t exactly be an accident. The area of Sydney is described as the financial center of the city, which is probably also no accident. However, the flag itself isn’t one commonly used by ISIS, as Buzzfeed points out. That doesn’t mean it’s not directly connected to ISIS, of course, but it may also be a home-grown effort of some sort.

Sydney’s Channel 7, the station across the street from the cafe, has live video coverage of the hostage situation:

We’ll keep an eye on the story for further developments.

Update: The Guardian has more on the flag:

My colleague Michael Safi reports the flag in the cafe window appears to bear the Shahada: “There is no god but the God, Muhammad is the messenger of God.” It is not the Islamic State flag.

He reports:

The flag that hostages appear to have been forced to hold up in the window of the Lindt Cafe in Martin Place is not the Islamic State flag – but that isn’t to say that Isis is not involved in today’s incident.

It could very well be a home-grown group that affiliates itself with ISIS or just shares its terrorist goals. It’s doubtful that ISIS will be unhappy to hear about this, though.

Update: The Daily Mail says it’s a Jabhat al-Nusra flag, which would make this an al-Qaeda operation, but that’s not been confirmed yet either.

Update: (Jazz) Cable networks slowly cutting away from this story, but the video feeds available quote a woman saying that a person with a blue bag, possibly containing a gun, entered the Lindt Cafe shortly before the events unfolded. Still looking for confirmation, but one report on NBC suggests it’s possible that they are dealing with a single perpetrator.

Update (Ed): I’ve been following the story on Twitter, but we’re being cautious with the updates. As longtime readers know, the first reports from a crisis situation almost always turn out to be wrong. We’ll wait for significantly corroborated updates before posting them. Feel free to share what you’re seeing in the comments, of course, but we’ve learned to be cautious about drawing conclusions from data that may change significantly within minutes.

Update (Ed): The police held a press conference a few minutes ago, in which they called the situation “contained” but noted that they have not had direct communication with the perpetrator:

Latest ISIS horror: Iraqi pamphlet advocates enslavement, sexual abuse of underage girls

Fresh off reports that ISIS representatives are ghoulishly shopping the decapitated body of American journalist James Foley around to prospective buyers, the Islamic State has embarked on a new campaign of crimes against basic decency.

According to an extremely disturbing report published in CNN, Islamic State representatives are distributing pamphlets in mosques in the ISIS-controlled Iraqi city of Mosul in which the guidelines for the appropriate treatment of women and children slaves are outlined. Yes, slaves.

“People in Mosul — the Iraqi city now under control of the group calling itself the Islamic State — got these and other messages loud and clear after sunset prayers Friday, when armed men handed out a color-printed pamphlet “Questions and Answers on Taking Captives and Slaves,” three residents told CNN,” the report read.

The behaviors sanctioned in these pamphlets may be difficult to read:

In the Middle East Media Research Institute’s English translation of that QA, for instance, it is explained that capturing women is permissible if she is “unbelieving” — i.e. not Muslim (at least up to ISIS’ standards).

Much of the pamphlet talks about ISIS’ policy on having sexual intercourse with a female slave, something that the group cites to Quran to justify.

“If she is a virgin, (her slave owner) can have intercourse with her immediately,” ISIS explains, according to the MEMRI translation. “However, if she isn’t, her uterus must be purified.”

There are other rules as well, like that two men who co-own a captive can’t both have sex with her and that a man can’t have intercourse with his wife’s slave.

As to girls: “It is permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse,” the document reads, according to MEMRI. “However if she is not fit for intercourse, then it is enough to enjoy her without intercourse.”

Sources in Mosul that CNN spoke with expressed shock and even revulsion over the sanctioning of these crimes against human dignity, but others observed that they don’t believe there is much they could do to stop this inhuman practice.

According to other reporting, ISIS has a reserve of captives from which to draw servants or objects of sexual abuse.

“As ISIS moved through the remote communities of northern Iraq in August, the group reportedly enslaved thousands of Yazidi women, whilst men were lined up by the side of the road and shot dead one by one into mass graves,” Newsweek reported on Tuesday.

According to human rights groups such as Human Rights Watch and the accounts of women who have managed to escape, these women were then taken to detention camps in the cities of Mosul and Tal Afar and sold off as servants or concubines.

More than 2,500 Yazidi women have been captured by the hardline terrorist group, according to work carried out by a team of researchers from Bristol University’s Gender and Violence Research Centre. The team is led by Nazand Begikhani, an adviser to the Kurdistan regional government on gender issues,

“These women have been treated like cattle,” she told CNN. “They have been subjected to physical and sexual violence, including systematic rape and sex slavery. They’ve been exposed in markets in Mosul and in Raqqa, Syria, carrying price tags.”

It seems as though there is a new ISIS horror emerging in the press nearly every day, and it is virtually unthinkable that any of these practices may one day be considered conventional. ISIS’s unceasing efforts to push the envelope of despicable behavior does, however, foster the concern that the shock value of these and other abuses may someday subside.

Is it possible that Westerners may eventually simply sigh and shrug at reports of ISIS’s latest affront to human worth? Hopefully, this group will be wiped from the face of the earth long before the West becomes inured to the parade of horrors in which these militants regularly engage.

That may be a long way off, however, give the incompetent and risk-averse fashion in which the campaign against the Islamic State is presently being waged.

Jeb Bush huddles with advisors: How can I avoid being tripped up by the conservative base in the primaries?

Good question, but the question Jeb should be considering is how do you survive two tons of ROMNEYMANIA dropping square on your head. ‘Cause it’s comin’, son.

No, seriously, with each passing day this sounds more like Huntsman II. But with lots, lots, lots more money involved.

“I just said to him, ‘I think if you look back, despite the far right’s complaints, it is the centrist that wins the nomination,’” Mr. McCain, an Arizona Republican, said he told Mr. Bush.

In the past few weeks, Mr. Bush has moved toward a run for the White House. His family’s resistance has receded. His advisers are seeking staff. And the former governor is even slimming down, shedding about 15 pounds thanks to frequent swimming and personal training sessions after a knee operation last year.

But before pursuing the presidency, Mr. Bush is grappling with the central question of whether he can prevail in a grueling primary battle without shifting his positions or altering his persona to satisfy his party’s hard-liners. In conversations with donors, friends and advisers, he is discussing whether he can navigate, and avoid being tripped up by, the conservative Republican base…

“I think people are ready for somebody honest, frank and willing to tell them what they think,” said Mr. Baker, adding of Mr. Bush, “I think he could run in a primary where he’s true to himself, his values and policy positions.”…

“We often say, ‘Let Jeb be Jeb,’” is how Mike Murphy, a longtime adviser, put it.

I’m not sure why John McCain, who’s happily posed more than once as a border hawk in primaries to pander to righties before reverting to form, is advising Jeb Bush to free his inner centrist. Either way, the takeaway from the Times story is the same as it was in the last few splashy “Jeb’s thinking about it!” features that have come down the news pike: As one ominous line late in the piece puts it, Jeb wants to run a “truth-telling campaign,” a phrase that sounds a lot like Huntsman-ese for “explaining to conservatives why they’re wrong.” With each new story in this vein that gets published, suspicions on the right deepen that Bush is guilty of the cardinal sin that Huntsman was guilty of and that the GOP’s congressional leadership, particularly in the House, seems too often guilty of, namely, believing that the Republican Party’s conservative base is a bigger problem for America than Democratic orthodoxy is. Is he running because he has a conservative vision, the odd Common Core or immigration heresy aside? Or is he running because the wingnuts are threatening to wrest the nomination from the donor class and someone with clout needs to step up and punch them in the face? Why would any tea partier turn out in the general election for a guy who took that approach with them, however successfully, in the primaries?

“If he goes forward with a campaign in which he avoids trying to appease the most conservative voters and wins the nomination as well as the presidency,” the Times notes, “it could reshape Republican politics for a generation.” I think that’s the deeper goal here, if not for Jeb himself than certainly for many of the establishmentarians who are egging him on to run as a loud and proud RINO. If he does that and wins, it’ll theoretically convince RINOs everywhere that there’s little to fear in challenging the tea party. (That’s gravely mistaken, as TPers can and do punch above their weight in Senate and especially House primaries, but that’ll be the takeaway.) It’ll demoralize righties for awhile too and make centrism newly respectable for grassroots Republicans who aren’t keen on the tea party for whatever reason. All of this is right in line with the more aggressive approach taken this year by the donor class to beat back conservative challenges in congressional primaries; Jeb winning the nomination as an unapologetic centrist would be something of a knockout blow. But the more that perception takes hold among conservatives, that the Bush candidacy is a torpedo aimed at them deliberately, obviously the greater incentive they’ll have to resist Jeb, even if it means refusing to turn out for him against Hillary. After all, if he loses the general election because they stayed home, it’ll send the message that they can never be challenged so directly in the primaries again. If you think the party’s divided now, imagine it after a Hillary victory that was helped along by animosity between the GOP base and its own nominee.

One interesting question is whether Christie or Romney would be willing to play the same tea-party-crushing role for establishmentarians as Jeb. Christie probably would because he’s Christie; the more cautious Romney, whose career is one long story of telling people what they want to hear and then reversing himself if need be, might not. (Which is ironic, since Romney was one of the forces behind the establishment’s big primary wins over conservatives this year.) Anyway, for your exit question, explain something to me: Why would a center-right voter prefer Jeb Bush to Scott Walker? We all do understand, I hope, that Walker will be running basically as a centrist, yes? He doesn’t need to pander to righties; he spent four years taking withering fire from lefties for his collective bargaining reforms and beat them at every turn. Unless he comes out for single-payer, he’s bulletproof on the right. I think he’s going to run as a similar sort of pragmatist as Bush — lots of talk about jobs and education, squishy on immigration, socially conservative but low key about it, and if tea partiers start getting restless with him, he’ll pull the ol’ “remember the time the unions spent millions to recall me and I kicked the sh*t out of them?” card. And then everyone will quiet down. He’s much younger than Bush, has midwestern appeal that Bush doesn’t, and more importantly, lacks all of the Bush family baggage that Jeb will be carrying around. So like I say, if you find Ted Cruz and Rand Paul a bit too far right, why would you prefer Jeb to Walker?

New Yorkers souring on how Bill de Blasio has run the city

With only weeks before New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s first year in office comes to a close, the Big Apple’s voters are starting to sour on their famously progressive mayor.

While a majority of voters continue to approve of the job the mayor has done in office (52 percent, according to the latest New York Times/Siena poll), a figure that remains largely unchanged from an April Siena poll, voters are turning on how the city is managed.

52 percent say that de Blasio’s New York City is on the “wrong track.” Only 41 percent disagree. That is a near perfect reversal from April when 51 percent said that the city was on the “right track” and only 42 percent disagreed. That’s the highest level of dissatisfaction with the state of the city this poll has registered since 2011.

“On the broad question of whether the mayor focuses on issues of importance to New Yorkers, he got a 48-47 favorability rating,” Capital New York reported. “Not surprisingly, only 20 percent of Republicans said he focuses on issues that matter to them, compared to 54 percent of Democrats.”

When de Blasio took office, a Quinnipiac polls showed that 67 percent of New York City-based survey respondents were optimistic about the future of the metropolis. 60 percent of voters believe that the new mayor would make progress on their chief priority.

The reason for the decline in optimism in this latest Siena survey is likely the result of its timing. This poll was taken immediately following the unrest that resulted from a grand jury’s decision not to indict the officer responsible for the death of Eric Garner.

New Yorkers were split about the state of race relations in the city, which de Blasio has sought balance on in his public remarks by speaking to the concerns of black and Latino residents upset with the NYPD while also unequivocally defending his police commissioner, Bill Bratton.

While 45 percent of those surveyed said race relations are good, 48 percent felt they are bad and 7 percent were undecided.

The split was fairly even along racial lines: 40 percent of blacks have a positive view of race relations, compared to 46 percent of whites and 44 percent of Hispanics. By comparison, 51 percent of blacks answered the question negatively, compared to 47 percent of whites and 49 percent of Hispanics.

While the city’s new mayor is largely avoiding blame for the dismal state of affairs and the public’s general apprehension about the future, he cannot escape it forever. De Blasio may be enjoying some residual goodwill he earned from voters in the wake of the 2013 election, but that benefit of the doubt is fast wearing off.

Voters do not like his priorities, they don’t like how he’s run the city, and they think the future is bleak. It’s only a matter of time before they blame the man in Gracie Mansion for the woeful state of affairs.

Bardarbunga – Possible Game Changer?

Bardarbunga – Possible Game Changer?

Posted by lamarzulli on December 12, 2014

volcano-cloud_1619580cCommentary Analysis by L. A. Marzulli

The eruption of Icelandic volcano Bardarbunga could have sweeping repercussions for the whole of Europe, and has been pencilled in as an “outrageous” risk for 2015

Yet again, an Icelandic volcano threatens to fracture the political landscape of Europe, just as one did in the 18th century. 

An explosion of Bardarbunga could wreak agricultural havoc, shifting weather patterns, and leading to a doubling of grain prices. 

The economic pain inflicted on already fragile France could usher in a new political era, as voters reach a tipping point. 

As the volcano Bardarbunga has been “quietly” erupting for more than 100 days, it could now enter “a far more intense eruption phase”, said John Hardy, head of FX strategy at Saxo Bank.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/11285291/How-a-volcanic-explosion-could-trigger-the-next-French-Revolution.html

I’m OK City and yesterday we did two TV shows for Prophecy Watchers, the new TV show spearheaded by host Gary Stearman and Bob Ulrich.  Then I headed over to Southwest Radio church and did three radio shows with Noah Hutchings and David Schnitger. It was Noah’s 92nd birthday.  All of the interviews covered On the Trail of the Nephilim II.

Back to the Blog.

As many of you know, I have been keeping an eye on the volcano’s in Iceland.  Guess what, Bardarbunga has been erupting for months now and according to the story above, is about to enter into a new phase.

Volcano’s are unpredictable and when they erupt they can be a game changer.  This is one reason why I have harped on stockpiling food and water.  What if Yellowstone decides to blow, here in the USA?  An eruption would cause food-shortages and certainly impact the countries infrastructure.

The article states that this is an outrageous prediction.  However, I would disagree.  As the piece points out, when volcano’s erupt the ash cloud can affect the weather patterns, which then effect the growing cycle of crops, which in turn affects food prices and that can impact every person within thousands of miles of the event.

The threat is real and I believe should be taken seriously.  Is this more “business as usual,” or should we take the advice of Holly Deyo and Dare to Prepare?

In closing todays short post.  Preparing for a natural disaster is just good common sense.  Having a supply of food, water and medicine on hand in case of emergency is being a good steward of our resources.  Having a garden to produce vegetables can be a source of not only fresh produce, but can connect folks with the wonder of planting a seed and watching grow, in other words, God’s creation!

Bill Bean, deliverance minister and acclaimed author of Dark Force, joins Sheila for the first hour to discuss how his family was tormented and destroyed by a demonic force that occupied their house in Glen Burnie, Maryland. Bean’s mother was assaulted on a regular basis by entities and Bean too was harassed by the home’s evil inhabitants. He reveals a frightening occurrence when something in his bedroom grabbed him by the shoulders and pinned him to his bed. Bean said a priest bearing mason jars of holy water came frequently to try to help the family, but the paranormal activity got even more intense and violent after his visits. The family eventually left the house, and Bean credits God for delivering him from the evil that resided there. Bean also spoke about his segment on the Discovery Channel series, A Haunting.

#1 The LanceI Need Your Help on Two Issues.

The Nephilim Lance!

This is an artifact that the owner, Bob Shelly, Chief Joseph Riverwind, and yours truly, have come to call the Nephilim Lance.

Here’s why.  Bob thought it was a sword and so did I when I first saw it, but Chief Joseph told us excitedly that it wasn’t a sword but a lance.  He then told us how the Native American oral tradition tell of these lances that would go through three braves!  We have had it tested and it is made of Bronze.  It has hammer marks and has two edges. What we’re looking for is a weapons expert.  

We think this artifact is very old.  It was found in a remote area of Michigan.

Please contact me: la@lamarzulli.net 

The second Request is for a Forensic Pathologist.

We have an artifact that is being kept safe is cold storage.  We need a forensic Pathologist to examine it.  We are also in need of a OBGYN to examine it too.

Please contact me: la@lamarzulli.net 

NOTE! 

I thought the piece on the History Channel’s In search of the Lost Giants, was fair and balanced.  They did a good job and I got to talk about the theory of the Nephilim.  It’s a beginning!  Thank you History.

Greenpeace activists to be charged with damaging 2000-yr-old art formations in Peru

As an activist with Greenpeace would surely tell you, it’s important to honor the earth, respect local cultures, never litter, and defer to the authority of the global community, which is why a handful of them decided to trample all over delicate 2000-year-old archaeological art formations considered culturally sacred ground for Peruvians and designated a UN World Heritage site, leaving a bunch of yellow trash in their wake. Nice job, guys. The Nazca lines are a series of geometric designs and outlines of animals created on a windless plateau in the desert of southern Peru. You’ve likely seen aerial or satellite photography of these large, famous designs, whose purpose to the Nazca people archaeologists haven’t determined.

Peruvian officials are understandably protective of these designs, which really only amount to very shallow trenches of just a few inches in the earth. Very few people are allowed to walk in the area, and when they do, they’re required to wear special shoes, a deputy cultural minister for the country told The Guardian.

Peru will seek criminal charges against Greenpeace activists who it says damaged the world-renowned Nazca lines by leaving footprints in the adjacent desert during a publicity stunt.

“It’s a true slap in the face at everything Peruvians consider sacred,” said Luis Jaime Castillo, the deputy culture minister, after the action by the environmental group on Monday, at the famed drawings etched into Peru’s coastal desert, a UN national heritage site.

He said the government was seeking to prevent those responsible from leaving the country while it asks prosecutors to file charges of attacking archaeological monuments, a crime punishable by up to six years in prison.

The activists entered a “strictly prohibited” area beside the figure of a hummingbird, the culture ministry said. They laid big yellow cloth letters reading: “Time for Change! The Future is Renewable.” The message was intended for delegates from 190 countries at the UN climate talks being held in Lima.

Well, at least they had a really effective plan, I guess. Watch out, UN. There’s a football-field-sized desecration of the environment made of yellow laundry bags asking you to save the environment. Some Peruvian authorities and environmentalists think climate change may endanger the Nazca lines in the future if it means more wind and rain in this formerly arid region. And, Greenpeace decided to speak out against this potential destruction by…hastening it? Check your environmentalist privilege, guys.

They executed the stunt near the hummingbird figure, and Peru alleges damage:

“They are absolutely fragile. They are black rocks on a white background. You walk there and the footprint is going to last hundreds or thousands of years,” Castillo said. “And the line that they have destroyed is the most visible and most recognized of all.”

Greenpeace spokeswoman Tina Loeffelbein said that the activists were “absolutely careful to protect the Nazca lines” and that the group is taking the case seriously and investigating.

She declined to answer further questions, such as whether Greenpeace intends to identify to authorities the people involved. The government has asked people to do so.

Click the image to watch them lumber clumsily through the dark in this area. I’m sure they were super careful.

These people are miscreants, and in this case, it seems they may literally be criminals. They should have to face local authorities for their actions (do I have to write alleged if they put up a publicity video?) and the damage they may have wrought, out of respect for the earth and local culture.

Is Christie flip-flopping on ‘torture’?

While monitoring the Chris Christie beat ahead of 2016, New York Times reporter Michael Barbaro made an interesting observation about the New Jersey governor’s response – or lack thereof, as the case may be – to the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s Bush-era enhanced interrogation techniques.

When asked by The Times reporter for his reaction to the widely publicized report, Christie declined to offer one.

“All I’ve seen, unfortunately, at this point, is some of the reporting from your newspaper, so I don’t think it would be responsible to comment based only on that,” Christie said.

He said of the report: “I’ll take some time to look at it. I don’t know about all of it. But I’ll take some time to get briefed on it for sure.”

As Barbaro later noted, Christie was nowhere near this cautious on the subject of supposed “torture” tactics by American interrogators in the War on Terror even despite his appointment by the Bush administration to serve as a United States attorney.

“I cannot believe, given the history of this country, that no matter what the threat to our country that we would forsake our protection of liberties to the extent that we would advocate torture as a way of getting evidence,” Christie said in 2002.

If Christie believed that the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation was not as thorough as it needed to be in order to come to the politically fraught conclusions it reached, it would have been advantageous for him to say as much. Considering the number of sources making this same contention, Christie would not have been in bad company. If, however, Christie is predisposed to agree with the findings of the SSCI’s report, he should have made the time to be briefed on its conclusions within the first 24 hours of its release.

For all purposes, the 2016 presidential cycle has begun, and neither Christie nor any other prospective Republican candidate can afford to allow the press to cast them as ill-prepared on matters as critical as the prosecution of the War on Terror.

As The Washington Free Beacon’s Matthew Continetti observed, Christie “needs to be briefed on national issues and say where he stands. Quickly.”

Continetti’s right. The vetting has already begun.

College president apologizes after offending students by saying “all lives matter”

I’m glad she walked it back. It’s a pretty outrageous statement.

Between garbage like this, Star Chamber justice for students accused of crimes, and the cost of tuition, why would any kid go to college anymore? Ah, right: Because we as a society agreed at some point that a B.A. is a prerequisite for any job more exalted than fry cook. If you want to work, you do your time at drunken sleepaway camp.

Carry on, then.

“We are united in our insistence that all lives matter,” read the e-mail, in which [Smith College President Kathleen McCartney] made clear she was strongly behind the [Eric Garner/Michael Brown] protests, writing that the grand jury decisions had “led to a shared fury… We gather in vigil, we raise our voices in protest.”

But she soon received backlash from students for her phrasing. They were offended that she did not stick with the slogan “black lives matter.”…

In response to student backlash, McCartney apologized in another campus-wide email Friday, saying she had made a mistake “despite my best intentions.”…

“I regret that I was unaware the phrase/hashtag “all lives matter” has been used by some to draw attention away from the focus on institutional violence against Black people,” she wrote.

Only by reading the two e-mails she sent out can you appreciate how stupidly Orwellian the backlash was. Some critics of the protests had been answering the “black lives matter” slogan with the phrase “all lives matter.” McCartney, who was palpably not being critical — she announced a vigil for Garner and Brown in her first e-mail and refers to herself in the second as a “white ally” — unwittingly used the same phrase to make the protesters’ point, i.e. that Garner’s and Brown’s lives shouldn’t matter less because they’re black. Her sympathy couldn’t have been clearer. She got flamed anyway. Says Charles Cooke, “a woman just apologized for having failed to repeat a mantra that she didn’t know existed.” I don’t know how to explain the impulse to punish someone who’s straining to show that she’s on your side except as an artifact of petty totalitarianism. It’s not enough that one doesn’t share the forbidden sentiment; one mustn’t speak it aloud either, even inadvertently, for fear that someone who hears it will misunderstand and then they’ll share the forbidden sentiment. The virus must be contained. The fact that McCartney is the resident authority figure on campus probably encouraged it too. When you’re looking for a reason to be outraged and the president of the college says something that can be kinda sorta twisted into a criticism of your position, despite abundant evidence to the contrary, why not grab it and run with it? For $40,000 a year, you’re entitled now and then to a pantomime of fighting the power.

What I want to know, and which we’ll never know, is what McCartney herself thought of this stupid, stupid, stupid “controversy.” Could be that she was genuinely sorry for the misunderstanding, but maybe not; maybe the impetus to grovel was less about sincere regret than about quickly short-circuiting any nascent attempts by junior Social Justice Warriors to turn this into an excuse to protest her office, hold sit-ins, complain to the trustees, etc. I think that’s a factor in why Columbia and Harvard were so willing to let law students postpone final exams over Garner and Brown too. Even if the administrators share the general public’s feeling that a student who can’t cope with grim news well enough to take a test probably isn’t someone you want to invest in as an employee, it’s better not to resist. Doing so might make you a co-conspirator in the dreaded “all lives matter” counterrevolution, and no self-respecting university administrator wants that.

Cromnibus stalled in appropriations?

Raise your hands if you thought that everything was business as usual on the Hill and the cromnibus was a done deal. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Okay, I guess it was just me. If you were in the army of doubting Thomas types, it may turn out that you were right after all. Roll Call has been knocking on doors behind the scenes, and the Sure Thing which was supposed to be signed by Wednesday isn’t looking so sure after all.

The release of the “cromnibus” has been delayed as lawmakers across the Capitol continue to work out a number of issues on the spending bill.

House and Senate appropriators expected to finish the legislative language of the cromnibus — a combination of a continuing resolution and an omnibus — by Monday afternoon. But negotiators are still dealing with a number of issues, according to GOP aides. The House was expected to release the text of the bill Monday night. That now seems unlikely, as does a vote on the bill in the House Wednesday.

“The playing field of questions is much larger than we previously realized,” one senior Republican aide said.

Leaving the House floor Monday afternoon, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said he had to “catch up with” Appropriations Chairman Harold Rogers, R-Ky., but said negotiators appeared to be “closing in on some final points” and “finishing out final details.” He wouldn’t commit to a timeline for filing the cromnibus, but predicted the chamber would finish its work by Thursday as planned.

It still sounds like most of the major players, including McCarthy, are painting a positive face on all this, but that doesn’t mean it’s a done deal. There are several EPA riders to defund power plant regulation enforcement to be dealt with, and each one could drive away some Democrats. The Homeland Security funding is still only good through March, allowing the new Republican majority in the Senate to deal with the executive amnesty question next month, but that’s apparently still not good enough for some conservative Republicans who may prefer to go down swinging rather than wait an entire 34 days to tackle that portion when their colleagues in the upper chamber are no longer in the cheap seats. Back on the House side, McCarthy and Boehner may have to rely on the good will of multiple Democrats, but then we come back to the EPA riders. If they are forced to give those up to keep the D team on board, it has the potential to cause more of a revolt on the Right.

The takeaway on this one seems fairly simple: nothing is ever easy in Congress. But this may be the last flare and perhaps some good Christmas cheer will show up and get this done by Thursday. If not, things get more … interesting. As in, may you live to see interesting times.
